Introduced in 2010, the fluidic (Hyundai says ‘neo fluidic’ for some reason) Elantra has been a successful model achieving the sales numbers the company set out for. However, since the design is 3 years old, Hyundai has to give the executive sedan a makeover.

Alfred H, a CarScoops reader, has clicked these images of the Elantra testing in Fullerton, California yesterday. We also have another image of the car being tested in Korea. The prototype in Korea has it’s doors camouflaged, while the prototype in the US does not. Maybe we can come to the conclusion that there wouldn’t be any change to the doors then?

The front and rear of the Elantra are camouflaged in both countries. So the exterior changes must be concentrated to these parts of the car then. How do we think Hyundai would facelift the Elantra? Well, the headlights and taillights would be detailed in a different manner with mild alterations to the grill. The rest of the car would continue unchanged.
